King's Gate Primary School



Mrs Gough


Welcome to Spring Term!

Mr Wolf's Pancakes

This term our driving text is 'Mr Wolf's Pancakes'. 

This half term children will learn about Easter, starting with their own experiences of Shrove Tuesday.  

We will also be focusing on the text 'Interview with a tiger' by Andy Seed: we are working alongside other local schools on a literacy project to bring non-fiction text to life.

Each week children will take part in a 'WOW' experiment, designed to promote awe and wonder and promote vocabulary and question skills.  We want our children to be interested in the world around them and seek to find answers.

We are learning letter sounds using our phonic scheme 'Supersonic Phonic Friends'.

We follow White Rose Maths.

At King's Gate Primary school we expect all children to read at home everyday and a minimum of four times per week.

In addition to reading, please practise the flashcards that we send home to support learning and feel free to ask if you have any questions at all. 

We will always keep you updated on our Homerun app.
